Hedlund has been considered one of those actors on the cusp within the industry. The 24-year-old Minnesota native made his debut in 2004’s “Troy,” and also appeared in such films as “Four Brothers” and “Georgia Rule.”
Thankfully, the remake will include Jeff Bridges who appeared in the original — and Olivia Wilde has also been added to the cast.
“Tron” is currently in production and is set to begin shooting in the spring. No official release date has been announced but, according to imdb, “Tron 2.0” could hit theatres sometime in 2011.
“Tron,” which was previously known as “Tron 2” and “Tr2n,” is expected to start shooting in the spring with Joseph Kosinski at the helm.
